It only takes about 30 minutes for the temperature inside your cab to climb 30-35 degrees higher than the temperature outside—even on a comfortable 70-degree day. And on those summer days when the temperature outside reaches the 90s or higher, getting into your truck can feel like stepping into a hot oven.
The only way to combat the heat and make the summer months bearable is by cranking up your air conditioning system. But what if it’s just not working?
Worn or damaged components can keep your A/C system – and your engine – from operating efficiently and effectively. The easiest way to make sure your A/C system is in good working order is to simply turn it on. If the A/C system can’t cool the cab to a comfortable temperature, your compressor may be failing.
Heart of the HVAC System
The compressor operates as a pump to circulate the refrigerant and to increase the refrigerant pressure in your truck’s HVAC system. Road Choice® Super Heavy-Duty (SHD) compressors are designed with innovative features that ensure smooth, dependable operation, no matter what make or model you’re driving:
- Flexible Rubber Armature – reduces shock load from continuously engaging.
- Friction Liner to the clutch rotor – delivers better engagement with the armature plate.
- Heavy Duty Extra Pure Steel Bearings in the clutch rotor – provide smoother rotation and longer life.
- Thermal Fuse in the clutch coil – prevents locking up or slippage.
Road Choice SHD Compressors are durable and have an extended service life, so you stay cool and comfortable for the long haul.
